The global foundation aims to drive sustainability in the yachting industry

Lignia Wood Company, a British timber modification business whose Lignia Yacht range is a real-wood alternative to Burmese teak, has joined the Water Revolution Foundation as a corporate partner.

Both organisations have similar aims and objectives to improve the eco-friendly credentials of the yachting industry. The Water Revolution Foundation aims to neutralise the footprint of the yachting industry and preserve the world’s oceans. It is said to be the first independent, international non-profit organisation that works to drive sustainability within the superyacht industry.

Lignia uses sustainably sourced wood from FSC certified plantations to create Lignia Yacht, a durable alternative to teak decking. The product is created via a timber modification process at Lignia’s state-of-the-art plant in Wales. The process results in a real-wood product that has the physical properties and appearance of popular hardwoods.
